CHRIS CRAN’S EXPLORE
EXHIBIT TO OPEN IN JUNE
Renowned Calgary-based artist and RCGS Fellow Chris Cran has created a series of paintings of leading Society figures that will be exhibited in the Upper Gallery at 50 Sussex Dr. this summer. Cran, who was recently featured in a major exhibit by the Art Gallery of Alberta and Ottawa’s National Art Gallery, is known for challenging perception and playing with illusion, for exploring and overturning traditional artistic genres and contemporary movements alike. Paintings and works on paper will include Society greats such as founder Charles Camsell, geologist and cartographer Joseph Burr Tyrrell (above), geologist Alice E. Wilson and astronaut Roberta Bondar.
